Welcome to the Cats Protection Isle of Wight Adoption Centre
We welcome your enquiries to the Adoption Centre from 9am - 4pm daily (closed Tuesdays). We have so many wonderful cats waiting for their forever home so do view our adopt a cat page or get in touch.
To keep our cats safe and happy, we've been inspired to carry on our popular cat matching appointments, both online and face-to-face.
We are happy to home our cats all over the Island and to the mainland with a maximum travelling time of 3 hours (to include Solent crossing)
Visitors to the Centre are by appointment only once you have been matched to one our of cats via your online application.

Parting with your cat
Giving up your cat is never an easy decision and sometimes cat owners can find themselves in a position where they have to give up their much loved pet through no fault of their own. If you need advice about having to give up your cat then rest assured we are here to help. We can support you through this difficult decision and find a solution that is best for your cat. Take a look at our guide on Rehoming your Cat for more information.
Do think about fostering a cat
If you love cats, but are unsure about the long-term commitment, fostering could be the answer. At our Centre, we always have cats and kittens needing a little extra help and loving care in a home environment until they find their forever families. As a volunteer fosterer you would care for one of these cats in your own home (no garden needed) for a few weeks until they are ready to be adopted. You really will be making a huge difference in helping to give these cats a second chance at a happy life. Head over to our Volunteer page for more information
Donating cat food, litter, cat toys and charity items
Thank you! These are all much needed and very welcome. If you are able, please drop off donations in our collection bin by our entrance gate - or just ring the number on the gate during opening hours. For more information on our online charity shop, merchandise store (where you can buy great gifts and cat essentials) and other ways you can provide invaluable help to us, head over to our Support Us page.
